Making merch

Getting happily settled in my new home and getting ready for the dTown Market at the end of the month. I'm making merchandise!

Honeycomb 3, WIP. Watercolor and hand embroidery.
Not selling my handmade work.

Sunday morning newspaper in my happy new kitchen.

Sounds so weird. I've never been that interested in selling what I make and here I am making cards, framing prints and making magnets from my little Hardscrabble & Wondrous collection of Durham photos.

Making merch -- magnets!

As odd at is is to make so many duplicate cards and prints, it's kind of fun, too. And I'm designing a little selling booth on which to display my merchandise. This is an entirely new experience for me.

Painting an old shutter to display my prints for the dTown Market.

And I finally have time to get back to stitching. Working on some honeycombs in different kinds of paper.

Wonky honeycomb experiment on a loteria card.

Feeling super fine.

First selfie in my new digs.  I finally feel HOME.


  1. Best of luck at the market, and your new home is beautiful, just like you!

  2. ooh, the shutter is a great idea! You're so creative, O! You'll do fantastic at the market, wish we could be there. xo
